I work in a male-dominant field. For the most part (95% of the time), I think I am treated equally and respectfully. But boy have I really had to deal with a few patronizing jerks that I couldn't help but wondered if I was treated differently because I am a woman. Don't get me wrong, I've worked with difficult people in highly challenging and stressful situations and I don't play the gender card because I believe I should only be judged on my ability, skills and performance, but there were a handful of occassions that I just felt I was being treated differently, and being talked to in a very condescending way that I just couldn't imagine a male in my situation would get the same treatment. Am I being over sensitive? I know discrimination or bias, or prejudice is inevitable, we all have different opinions but I am talking about downright sexist comments/behaviors. Did you hear what H. Clinton's opponent said about her spending millions on cosmetic/plastic surgeries? Would he have said that to a male opponent in an attempt to belittle him? That was a low blow I think. Anyway, just curious what ya'll working laides think. Thanks.
